Default Fun styling challenge, PT "club coupe"

OK, rev up your imagination! Take a 4dr PT, remove the doors and rear quarters. Replace with the longer convertible doors and mate to the rear convertible quarters. You now have a 2dr "club coupe". Just add solid rear passenger area windows. If you add a vinyl top, the smallest rear windows could be covered. The convertible roll bar could be incorporated inside or reposition the original vertical upper door supports. The inner door[:I] panels from the convertible would finish off the interior. Wadda ya tink?

I'm surpised you didn't get more feedback on this. In the 50's they would make a hard top and cover it in vinal to make it look like a clean up convertable top. Often these "carson" tops were for hard tops that people chop the tops off of to make convertables. One would look good on the PT but I question if you would want to do a convertable or use a standard one. California Custums and some other shops have already taken the tops off of those but have come up with different solutions to adding a new top.
